Charlie Jacobson December 21 - 23 show starts at 9pm.
As well as his personal projects, Charlie has been cutting his teeth as the guitarist for some of Canada’s most well respected blues acts including Kenny “Blues Boss” Wayne, Russell Jackson and Donald Ray Johnson. This has included performances at the Calgary International Blues Festival in 2013 and 2014, and prominent blues clubs around Alberta. Jackson and Johnson form the rhythm section on the new Charlie Jacobson Band recording. In addition to being an accomplished guitarist and songwriter, Charlie is a true showman. f there is a table to dance on, a banister to slide off or a chandelier to swing from, you’ll find him working it into his passionate, high energy act. Charlie was raised in central Alberta with strong ties to the aspen parkland and his grandparent’s farm. This geography of mountains to the west, badlands in the east, prairie to the south and lakeland in the north provides a rich palette of imagery to draw on in his songwriting. The result is driving blues-rock with a sensitive heart.
The touring Charlie Jacobson Band is:
Craig Gomez – Guitar, Keys
